7:31 am
because as reginaley wis will tell us, if you know certain tricks go, prepared, don't just say, let me see what i find but are strategic about you absolutely still have time to get great deals today and get out quick. >> there we go. remember what happened about a year ago right now tiger woods, his fall from grace? >> right, that was a year ago. >> sudden and dramatic. were was a year ago woods crashed his suv unleashing the shocking details of had is extramarital affairs. we're going to take a look back alt tiger's horrible year and see if perhaps he can regain his stature as the world's greatest golfer. >> we turn now to a shocking honeymoon death. sevenees ago a young bride died while scuba diving in australia with her husband. gabe watson did time in prison there and yesterday was extradited back to the u.s., where he is now facing a murder charge. before we speak exclusively with watson's attorney cbs news correspondents seth doane has the story. >> reporter: this chilling photograph taken by a fellow american honeymooner capture ad
7:32 am
lifeless tina watson, her arms raised toward the surface lying helpless on the ocean floor. >> blow the camera a kissy. >> reporter: seen packing for that fatal trip to australia in 2003, 26-year-old tina had only been married for 11 days when police allege her husband, gabe watson, killed her while on their honeymoon, to cash in on a small insurance policy. australian police demonstrate how they believe tina was killed. they say watson cut off tina's air supply giving her a bear hug then watched her sink to the o ocean floor. watson, a certified rescue diver told 16 of different versions of what happened during sbaergation. >> the fight against the occur rent is what allowed whatever thing that took place that caused had tore black out. >> reporter: in 2009 an australian court convicted him of manslaughter and he served and 18-month sentence.
7:33 am
it's a punishment tina's family says is not harsh enough. >> until he actually faces the evidence for the first time in a criminal trial before a jury, there can be no, no rest or no peace for anyone in our family. >> reporter: thursday, australian authorities returned watson to the u.s. under an agreement prosecutors here would not seek the death penalty. >> the theory is, because the plot, the scheme to hatch the murder took place in alabama, he should, also, stand trial for that in alabama in a way he did not stand try in australia. >> reporter: seth doane, cbs news, new york. >> joining us exclusively from birmingham, alabama is gabe watson's attorney, joseph baskie. good morning. >> good morning, maggie. i hope you had a happy thanksgiving yesterday. >> i did. thank you very much. i wanted to ask you, alabama authorities believe they have jurisdiction here even though this alleged crime took place in australia because your client probably hatched the idea in
7:34 am
alabama. how do you respond to that? >> well, there are a number of issues in this case that need to be handled pretrial. that is one of them. we dispute that. we have serious concerns about gabe's constitutional rights being violated in this situation. i haven't seen anything in the evidence that would warrant that allegation. >> why did he plead guilty, then, to manslaughter in australia? why did he he just not plead not guilty? >> maggie, you know, that's a good question. and i want the viewing public to understand that what gabe pled guilty it was be a obscure australian law which they are calling manslaughter but reads almost like a violation of the good samaritan law. he didn't do enough to save tina's life. the closest crime we have in bam in is called negligent hmm side which is actually a misdemeanor. when you have a client facing the possibility of life in prison on a murder charge versus
7:35 am
a misdemeanor with limited print time often you have to weigh the rifngs and rewards and go with the lower plea. >> well, that raises the question why didn't he do enough to save his wife's life? he is a certified rescue diver. >> well, you know, he took a class two years before this dive. it was a half-day class and got certified that way. he had never participated in a rescue dive before. he wasn't an expert rescuer. he had never done it. and he was scared, too. this was his -- his new wife. >> the attorney general in alabama says there is no international standard on double jeopardy that would prevent him for tripg your client on the death again in alabama. do you intend to argue otherwise? >> we will. we will certainly argue that this is double jeopardy. we will certainly argue grew that his rights to due process are being violated there. are a lot of constitutional concerns in this case. >> how will he plead in alabama, if it comes to that?
7:36 am
>> he will plead not guilty. >> are you concerned about the kind of trial that he might receive because the attorney general and victim's family have been so vocal about this case against your client? >> you know, i'm glad you that brought that up, maggie. in alabama, there's almost a code of silence amongst the prosecutor early to group in alabama. it's very unusual to see prosecutors speaking this openly and freely in the media. when you see that kind of exposure on their part, it calls into question what their actual moves are behind this whole thing. that certainly has had an impact on the public in alabama, and we're concerned about that and a lot of things that we've heard in the media are untrue. >> thank you so much for your time. >> thank you, maggie. >> it is time

8:12 am
a day a lot of driving is involved. people head to outlets and malls and these places aren't always close together. prioritize by price. make your first stop wherever you go for the big-ticket items, the highest risk of sell out and use tools like mapquest where you can put this 25 different stops and optimizing the out for you. so, really down to knowing are we going to turn left or right, you can have it all mapped out. >> you research everything ahead of time, exactly how much everything is going to cost when you get there. then you go out with your list. now, how do i know i'm getting the best deal when i get to the store? how do i know this is the best price for this item. >> this is where apps come in an app called redlaser you take a real-time scan of the bar code on any item and tell you instantly is it cheaper down the street or on the internet. you can type in the universal product code, the nine-digit
8:13 am
number above the familiar bar code and run a search on your smartphone, really coming into play. a lot of people are using them to show, hey, i've got the coupon, here's the code. keep in mind you have a tool in your pocket. >> so many people are focused on buying gifts they miss other great deals. >> things for yourself. practical items so outerwear if you need a coat for yourself or a vest, something for the kids, a really good time. appliances also deeply discounted. watch for that. it is a time not just about gifts but there's a lot of practical items that may have been on your list a while you won't see at better prices than now sgr a great tip a lot of people haven't thought about. i know a lot of people do this and i've been guilty of it, look at this clock,s it see it on sale i'll bird's-eye view five and give it to everybody then you give them a gift they don't want. what is your advice. >> about 10% of all items are returned. you're not alone. there is a neat trick of taking the gift receipt and stapling it to the bag or literally taping it on the box what department
8:14 am
stores do when he he they sticker items when you leave. use a credit card and look at that return policy window. one thing about buying in bulk like that, buying early, by the time you give the gift you could be outside of that 30-day window in which case the return is not going to be practical. that's the one thing about shopping early, especially on electronics where that window tends to be 15 days. >> exactly. what do you say to people despite everything we said will say, you know, i'm going sit out today. >> absolutely, i think it is the pack mentality, the sense of urgency, of course coming up on cyber monday. several more sales cycles but people have today off and are out there, of course doing window shopping, as well. but it's not game over. this is just the beginning, just a very loud and very hyped beginning. >> as we were talking about earlier with rebecca jarvis, cyber monday is just as great, as far as deals are concerned. >> yeah. the deals are comparable. there will be some web-exclusive deals so sometimes they are exactly the same as in the store or sometimes online exclusive
8:15 am
deals and ul see a lot of free shipping monday. if people come into monday with pent-up demand not only shopping this weekend but window shopping. monday they get down to business and start buying. >> are they going to find an adequate supply by monday online or will people buy everything there is in stores today. >> online they have the ability to restock and ship it from one warehouse as opposed to the step which stores have it and which don't. by the way, before you get in the car especially later today, wondering if we get there will it sell out? go to sites that are tracking that and can save the trip. >> awesome stuff. thank you so much. up next from gifts to gatherings expectations can run high this time of year. we'll talk about how to avoid disappointment and stay upbeat this holiday season. you're watching "the early show" on cbs. this new jetta is awesome.

expectations can run high during the holiday season and when the reality of gifts or family gatherings fall short, it can set up some feelings of holiday blues. psychiatrist janet taylor is here with ways to manage those great expectations. good morning. >> good morning. >> it really is all about that, isn't it? >> it is. i mean, we all love the holidays, the optimism, a new year is coming but on the other hand have to be really realistic about our own circumstances and teach our children, ourselves, what to expect. >> yeah. how, then, do you go about sort of embracing the magic but still
8:19 am
have your feet planted in reality? >> so, i mean, you certainly want to believe but have to look at your circumstances, your economic circumstances and teach your kids about other alternatives other than just giving during the holiday season. it's also about receiving and creating values and reinforcing your values for free. >> i think sometimes, you know, you feel you are under all this economic pressure and let go of -- you et go of the things that maybe you really ought to be oonz hanging on to, not the material stuff but the other stuff. >> exactly about creating meaning and memories. that's about time spent, about the experience, about sharing your own best holidays were like and really listening to yourself and your family. >> you know that he storytelling that happens around the dinnertable and, you know, what happened when you were a little kid and your kids sometimes -- teenagers are like this but they hear every word. >> they do. i mean, it's about tradition and ritual and the fact that as older parents or your grandparents, really about the keepr of the meaning and sharing
8:20 am
stories is free. and kids are always listening. >> love it one of the other things in terms of the reality part of this is, as you're head nothing like right now look at all toes people running around in the shopping mall you need to know, you need to set a budget and need to know what you will spend right now before you go out. >> there absolutely. especially with kids feeling a lot of pressure and marketed to, they can do well with a quantifiable amount. if you sti your kids, listen, this year for hanukkah or christmas, whatever you celebrate we'll get one or two or three things, let's talk about what's most important write down a list so kids don't think they can write ten things and get them all. >> and be crushed christmas day when it doesn't come true. >> exactly. >> one other thing you suggest i like a lot, perform a good deed. >> when we give to other people and do good not only we teach our families but helping other people, so volunteering your time donating what you have is so important. not only can we use holiday time to do that but any time.
8:21 am
>> one of the other things i find so interesting is you know, you want people to behave as well as humanly possible and, of course, they don't and they won't. so, you suggest to anticipate conflict. >> there's always drama at some point, you know, maybe an uncle who drinks a little too much or some people love their parents, love their mothers but can't spend five days, three days. know that and think about it. it really is all about apt mizing your time and certainly you want to enjoy it but it's okay to say, this year instead of five days i'll say three or maybe mix a little water with uncle sam's gin or something. but anticipate the drama and prepare yourself. >> right. this one is interesting to me, the idea of trying something different. like? >> well, you know, sometimes if, you know, if you go to someone's house and it's really uncomfortable, invite them to yours or maybe in some cases your physical presence may not be needed. send a video.
8:22 am
do something video. go christmas caroling. >> mix it up a little bit. >> mix it up a little bit, be willing to do that. >> especially if there is a no-fault written in, we're going to do this thing, if it doesn't work, we don't have to do it again. >> change is always good, no vetly is good. >> i like when all is said and done and all the pressure and everything don't be afraid to ask for help. >> absolutely. especially unfortunately the women take on the burden and at the end totally burned out and stressed out. when people offer to help, let them help. we can relegate some control and have a good time. >> you have to relen kwish kroefl. >> absolutely. >> that's it. >> exactly. >> dr. janet taylor have great holidays. >> you, too. >> thanks for being here. for more on managing holiday expectations all you have to do is go to our website earlyshow.cbsnews.com still ahead, if you can't afford to make it to radio city music hall in the next month or so, don't worry. we're bringing the legendary
